Another Labradorite and Foliage Ring

I’ve been having a lot of fun with these rings – which are very delicate and require patience and a lot of soldering.

  1. Hi, I love your work, but I’m confused by your comment about soldering. I thought these intricate pieces were wax carvings. No?

    • Hi Katie. No wax involved here – all fabrication. It starts with a wire framework, then the leaves and fruits are soldered on one at a time. The leaves are stamped with pattern in a little die that I cut from mild steel.
